"17 Pelicans Along the Bank When I'm 64"

For even casual followers of the local art scene, a new exhibition by James Cobb is something to get excited about. Since the mid-1980s, Cobb has notched over 25 solo exhibitions and experimented wildly, with a creative abandon and pesky curiosity that makes him truly magnetic, in the realms of painting, drawing, digital media and music. His restlessness is an abundant and odd territory of generous fertility — whereas, for so many, restlessness just leads around in circles. For his new exhibit at FL!GHT, which collects work from the past two years, details are somewhat scarce. What we do know is that the exhibit, titled “17 Pelicans Along the Banks When I’m 64,” combines three distinct (though not necessarily separate) bodies of work, all of which veer to the realms of surreal geometry, digital layering, dense symbolism and rich colors/textures. Some of the initial images are truly stunning. And, with Cobb, we’d be remiss not to also expect some surprises. Following the opening reception, “17 Pelicans Along the Banks When I’m 64” remains on view by appointment through January 27.

    Owned by a man with beard enough for two, Mark Vollmer’s coffee trailer offers quality coffee and pastries to cappuccino-craving commuters at 410 and Nacogdoches. In the time since it’s opened, the area surrounding this coffee trailer has transformed into a hub of food vendors with varied seating options, some natural greenery and occasional live music. Grab an iced latte (there’s house-made almond milk for vegans, too) and admire one of the classic muscle cars that frequently stop by.
